Poetry Recitation by our Young Starsadmin
“What makes you a poet is a gift for language, and ability to see into the heart of things, and an ability to deal with important unconscious material. When all these things come together, you’re a poet. But there isn’t one little gimmick that makes you a poet. There isn’t any formula for it.”
– Erica Jong
If you want your child to prepare well for life, start early at honing the skills. Communication has a different stature in the world. Elocution improves one’s communication skills and builds confidence in one to share your views and ideas with the world. An elocution competition at the school level gives students a good opportunity to combat the biggest fear factor i.e., stage fear. To develop this skill among the young Jaipurians, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Lucknow has organized English Elocution which is divided into different categories. Group A- classes I and II, Group B- classes III-V, Group C- classes VI-VIII and Group D- IX-XII.
The first day kickstarted with the students of classes I and II showcasing their communication skills. The entire event was hosted by our young talents, Arya Arun Pandey and Tanvika Pandey.

The panel of judges included our Principal, Ms. Poonam Kochitty, Head Mistress Ms. Monika Taneja, Mr. Pankaj Rathore, Headmaster and TGT Social Studies Ms. Garvita Singh.
